Eclectic decor feels right at home in loft

So does Jack Irwin, who likes the Commercial Street setting and the friends who live there.

Becky Reigel News-Leader

Commercial street loft living is a good fit for Jack Irwin and his friends, part of a growing number of residents who call the urban district home.
You're invited to check out his place, and those of many of his neighbors, on Sept. 24 at the ninth annual C-Street Loft Walk, an Uptown Lifestyle Tour.

Window treatments are both practical and beautiful. They provide privacy, block out light, and offer a bit of climate control.

Warm decor is Rx for doctors' offices

There's not much to like about a doctor's office. It's a place too often associated with pain, embarrassment and the secret dread that a lump, rash or shortness of breath may be cause for serious concern.
